Les Mis...A Rebirth of the Musical on Film
Ok, you've seen the play. Millions have. You doubt movie actors could live up to the quality of stage performer's professional voices. You are correct, BUT the acting of the singing, if you follow me, is supurb and just as moving in it's own way. Sure Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Sasha Cohen may not be "professional" singers, but Russ and Anne can act you into tears.
The CG is magnificent.
Personally, I would prefer them not do the dirty look (bad teeth, swimming in sewer, absolutely no makeup, living in filth, etc.). Realism and musicals don't really need to mix. Only an opinion.
Jackman is the best of all worlds. He excels at whatever he does.
